If you’ve spent any time on social media or if you watch reality television, you may have some familiarity with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Celebrities and sports stars are using it to assist with things like better recovery, but it can help with a lot more.
To briefly provide a refresher on what PRP therapy is, it uses the blood of a patient to enable the natural growth factors of the body. Doctors are isolating the plasma in this form of therapy and injecting it into damaged tissues. The blood plasma is comprised of special proteins that assist with blood clotting as well as supporting the growth of cells.
Besides helping with recovery, PRP therapy also has cosmetic benefits. It may help men and women dealing with hair loss and it can also be used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis (a common degenerative joint condition), injuries in the body’s soft tissues, disorders caused by repetitive stress, and more. Since the treatment is coming from the patient’s blood, the risk of the body rejecting the PRP treatment is removed.
